Washington - Republican members of the Senate and House of Representatives, constituting the legislative branch of the U.S. government which has been rendered superfluous by President Donald Trump, were overwhelming in their support of the President according to sources at the Capitol.
“The President can count on us”, said Lindsey Graham, head of the Senate Judiciary Committee. While Graham spoke, the President signed his 341st executive order, effectively running the government while the Senate and House did nothing except investigate the President.
Since the President has also refused to allow any executive branch employees or Trump family members to testify before House and Senate committees, even the committee controlled by Republicans, those investigations have ground to a halt.
“We basically just stand around the office coffee maker all day” said one GOP Senate staffer.
